Stop Fucking Giving Up

Fighting fat? Today’s feed is about getting fed. The right way.

 

Before you get your silkies in a wad, here’s our disclaimer: The major problem with universal nutrition advice is that we don’t fucking know your history, your goals, your body type, your measurements, your ratios of bodyfat to muscle… so we have to dish out the general shit for everyone and tell you to talk to a qualified dietician if you want things to get personal.

 

BACK TO THE BEGINNING

Let’s start with the basics. WHAT ARE MACROS?

Macros are macronutrients: proteins, carbs, and fats. Everyone has an ideal ratio for their body type and goals. To find yours, look up a daily macro calculator online or talk to a certified dietician or nutritionist.

 

DAILY GOALS

  1. MAKE your meals healthy, clean, and balanced (see next section)
  2. For those not doing Intermittent Fasting (we’ll chat about that shit at a later date), EAT every 2-3 hours (aim for 5-6 meals/day + a protein shake post workout)
  3. ELIMINATE soda/most processed sugars (save these for cheat meals)
  4. CUT alcohol (alcohol slows your metabolism and makes you store fat) during the week, or at least go for that whiskey neat, a light beer (we won’t tell), or some red wine. All the fucking sugars in your margaritas and Long Islands aren’t helping your goals, sweet cheeks.
  5. AVOID adding loads of salt to foods (or butter) –try to add flavor in new ways (spices like mrs dash/onion/garlic powder/flavor god spices)
  6. ALWAYS HAVE a protein shake or high protein meal post-workout (within 30 min after) or a protein bar. Your muscles will thank you.
  7. For most people, carbs and healthy fat and protein in the A.M., moderate carbs and protein pre workout, high carbs and protein post workout, and few carbs, higher protein, and healthy fats before bed are the way to go.

 

GENERAL SUGGESTIONS

 

PROTEINS

Chicken, Fish (Tilapia, Tuna, Sockeye, Cod, Mahi), Salmon, Lean Steak and Ground Beef, Eggs, Egg Whites, Cottage Cheese, Lean Ground Turkey, Greek Yogurt, Low Sodium Deli Meat, Lentils, Tofu (just kidding, don’t fucking do that to yourself)

The best nutrition is customized to YOU, but we don’t sell that shit. So go buy a motivational shirt, get fucking moving, and stop fucking giving up in the kitchen if you want to see some damn results.

 

We believe in you.
